Code Kata

Code Katas are programming exercises with the aim of just practicing the skill of programming.

We'll have a Code Kata session at BayHac '13 on Saturday afternoon. There'll be a coding problem, and we'll break into groups or singles and tackle it in Haskell. The problem will expand as time progresses. After about two hours of coding, we'll re-group and do some quick reviews of the solutions people came up with and discuss the challenges and design trade-offs.

If you're interested in this activity, please let us know.
